This morning the pool was a little too crowded for a swim, being a beautiful sunrise I opted for some winter play. Walking along the old rails to trail I remembered the allure of winter hikes. The trail I walked on was loaded first with snowmobile tracks, than as I moved further along the river fox, deer, rabbits, and I am sure many others I didn’t catch. I am glad I took my snow shoes as it allowed me to go off the path in areas that are normally covered in brush in the summer. Quiet, peaceful, textural – I have been slow to get back in the studio after Christmas. Winter has come, it’s time for play!
